Dog and Bell, The

The Dog and Bell

Deptford has a rather otherworldly feel about it, and this backest-of-back street pubs couldn’t really be anywhere else in the Smoke. It’s worth the hike though: you can generally expect to find Dark Star on the bar (and even if you don’t, the other cask ales will be perfectly kept) and some intelligently selected Belgian beers (such as Mort Subite and Cantillon) in the fridge. Perhaps because it is slightly isolated, The Dog and Bell feels like a real throwback – in the best way possible.
